Penguin Computing™ POD

Instant access to true HPC power…

What is POD?

Penguin Computing™ on Demand (POD), is a secure, flexible and scalable HPC cloud solution that delivers supercomputing in a cloud environment.

We understand compute intensive workloads and help accelerate your move from concept to market quickly.

With Penguin High Performance Computing on Demand (POD), you can utilize a high-performance, bare-metal, HPC environment in the cloud without having to invest in on-premise infrastructure.

POD eliminates many of the challenges associated with HPC by providing free support from HPC experts who will help optimize your workflow, a self-service portal and simple on-demand pricing.

What makes Penguin Computing POD different?

Penguin Computing POD is a secure HPC compute environment that provides features and benefits that other providers do not:

Runs HPC Native

HPC expert help included

No charges to bring large data sets in and out of the cloud

No need to custom-build an HPC environment

HPC tools and libraries already working, plus schedulers and cluster managers

High performance file system with high-speed, low-latency interconnects

POD Security

To ensure you have the most secure environment possible to protect your data, secure your identity, and restrict access to only authorized users, Penguin Computing POD:

  • Uses a Single-Tenant Compute Environment – Unlike multi-tenant cloud environments, POD’s compute environment is segregated to protect your privacy.
  • Layers on Physical Security – POD is hosted at a highly secure, Tier III facility that undergoes an annual SSAE18 SOC 2 Type II audit.
  • Ensures Data Security – All customer data lives solely at our United States, Tier III datacenter facility. Customers have complete control over access and persistence of their cloud data.
  • Encrypted Connections – All access to POD is over secure, industry standard, encrypted protocols: HTTPS+SSL, SSH through AES-128 or AES-256, or customized private VPN connections through AES-256.

Transparent Pricing

Traditional, on-premises clusters have many capital and operational expenses that can quickly add up. Beyond the capital expense to purchase a modest HPC cluster, you still have datacenter, power and cooling, and administration expenses. You never have to worry about these expenses when you use POD. Our simple pricing model makes it easy to forecast costs and set limits on usage to ensure you are never over budget. With POD, you only pay for the resources you use, with no hidden costs or extra fees, no extra charge for expert HPC support, and no extra charges for standard network bandwidth.


Leverage our two decades of experience in building and optimizing HPC environments and applications with free support from our HPC experts, who will assist you in running applications, managing workflows, and getting the best POD customer experience possible.

With included free support from HPC experts, transparent pricing, and a variety of financing options, POD meets the needs of both power users who need to expand capacity quickly as well as those building their organizations on a budget.
